been going for democrats and presidential elections. and i think we're going to have success on tuesday if we do what we know how to do, turn out voters. the president coming to arlington for the ticket today will really help with voter turnout. we feel good with what we see. i think the election, if it works out the way i suspect it will, it is going to be a repudiation of the sort of no compromise tea party strand of the republican party. there is republicans who aren't in that mode, but in virginia, and in many places now, it is the no compromise tea party wing that is taking control. and i think that brand of government, which virginians saw and experienced with the shutdown is going to get rejected on tuesday. and then with that, back to the rule reforms, look, i'm not an expert on the senate rules and they're complicated. with would we do a complete elimination of the filibuster? probably not. the filibuster has had a venerable part of the tradition of the senate. but the problem is the filibuster was reserved originally for only the most extreme issues when people would take the

forward to now, and members will still be required to go into those exchanges, our elected members of congress, but because of the way the law was written, vaguely, it's not as clear for staff. there's a very messy debate over that. really quickly, here's why. when the law was written, it said that members of congress and quote, congressional staff, would have to go into the exchanges, but just about a month ago, the office of personnel management came out with a ruling saying that congressional staff meant official office staff. how about that for bureaucratic language. what does that mean? that's up to each member of congress, the office of personnel management said. so then what we have now is members of congress, some of them like darrell issa, saying that he plans to exempt all of his staff, saying none of my staff is official staff. he says he doesn't want anyone to go into the exchanges and that's why there's others that are particularly questioning committee staff or leadership staff, do they count. so we're seeing a lot of divide and right now at this hour is when congress

-tracking, they call it, with our elected representatives given the choice only of voting it up or down. last year, over 130 members of congress asked the white house for more transparency about what's being negotiated and were essentially told to go fly a kite. you can be sure of this, however. a select group of corporate partners, companies like generax electric, goldman sachs, and pfizer, the pharmaceutical giant, are not likely to be in the dark. players like these stand to be the real beneficiaries of the agreement, because like other so-called "free trade" agreements, tpp actually will reward those at the top, even as it creates rules that will override domestic laws on the environment, workplace safety, and investment. corporate lobbyists already are lining up in washington to ram the agreement through once the white house hurries it out of the delivery room. how do we know this? because some vigilant independent watchdogs are tracking the negotiations with sources they trust, and two are with me now. yves smith is an expert on investment banking and the founder of aurora advisers, a new yo
